Document Description
The subject property is 3.63 acres in size and is part of the site of a former landfill. In 2001, the City of Anaheim, through its former Redevelopment Agency, commenced the acquisition and subsequent environmental remediation of the site. On July 30, 2019, the City Council approved a Disposition and Development Agreement (DDA) with Zelman Anaheim, LLC and the subject project applicant, Greenlaw Partners, Inc. The DDA provides for the construction of approximately 38,000 square feet of retail/restaurant uses, mixed-uses, and up to 65 townhomes. Pursuant to the DDA, this proposal provides for construction of 65 townhomes by Greenlaw Partners, Inc. Future development of retail/restaurant uses is anticipated to be forthcoming from Zelman Anaheim, LLC as the project applicant at a future date. The applicant proposes to construct 65 attached, single-family residences using the Beach Boulevard Specific Plan (BBSP) Mixed-Use Medium (MU-M) Development Area development standards. The project would consist of a series of 4-plex to 9-plex buildings that would be approximately 45 feet in height, or three-stories tall, with 10 two-bedroom units, 45 three-bedroom units, and 10 four bedroom units. The homeowner’s association owns and maintains all common areas, including driveways, recreational areas, paseos and sidewalks. The project would provide vehicular ingress and egress with a single, private drive that connects to Lincoln Boulevard on the south side of the project site. Each unit would include two garage bays. The proposed project includes 130 garage parking spaces and 63 open parking stalls. A portion of the rear of the project site is within the boundary of the former landfill, where a drive aisle and parking area would be constructed within a parking easement on a separate City-owned parcel.
